At the request of the President, the Office of Legal Affairs represents the University in negotiations for the purchase or lease of real property. All such transactions are subject to the approval of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, and are carried out by Assistant Attorneys General of the State of Georgia. Georgia Southern University has no in-house authority to enter into real estate purchase and sale or lease agreements. The Office of Legal Affairs acts as a liaison with the Board of Regents’ Office of Facilities and the Georgia Department of Law in such transactions.
Georgia Southern University enjoys a cooperative relationship with Georgia Southern University Housing Foundation, Inc. This separately incorporated organization has assisted the University with the purchase, construction or remodel of ten projects on the Georgia Southern Campus.
